Booked a week before directly through the resorts website for a great price. Prompt and friendly email contact from the staff with useful info. Great chalet overlooking the lake. Fully equipped, couldn't want for more. Kangaroos just outside the chalet if you're up early enough to catch the sunrise. I'd recommend walking around the property as the sun rises to... More

If you are driving down to Margaret River from Perth, I recommend you stay in Willy Resort. It seems you are alone...haha.. I haven't met other guests during our stay (3 days 2 nights) BBQ is just one step from the living area. High quality cooking utensils are more than enough.

If you are looking for an amazing weekend away with a loved one then this is the place to book. It is such a peaceful place to relax. Super quiet and beautiful ambience. The King chalet was incredible. Such a great design. You can't beat the location or the staff. Margaret River's little secret.
